Repair Your Mining Equipment On-Site

Posted by Gregory Merritt on Thu, Sep 10, 2009 @ 13:09 PM

This posting is to let you know how easy it is to do weld repairs of your mining equipment right on-site in the field. Save time, save money and improve quality.

Here's How: By applying sub-harmonic vibrations during welding (from the portable Meta-Lax equipment) the weld metal packs down during solidification. Grain refinement and crack resistant welds result.

The ability to make extensive weld repairs on-site without taking the part back to the shop is now possible for two reasons. First, by using the patented Meta-Lax sub-harmonic vibration process during welding, weld quality is improved due to grain refinement and lower porosity.

This means that extensive weld repairs can be made on-site and usually without disassembly.  Second, the Meta-Lax equipment is extremely portable and only needs 110v electricity from a generator. Why bother taking time to transport parts to the shop when the solution can come to the part?
